Another would be Green Lantern. I'd skip the mostly forgettable ACW stories, and maybe run from the two Emerald Dawn minis through "Emerald Twilight". If you're adventurous, there's also GL: Mosaic, GL Corps Quarterly, and Guy Gardner you could intertwine.
I've seriously considered this several times. I've also toyed with starting in the Silver Age and taking it all the way up to Parallax.
This is something that I'd enjoy following along with. I've assembled most of the vol. 2 (Silver/Bronze Age) Green Lantern, albeit most of the Silver Age stuff is via black and white Showcase Presents TPBs. Green Lantern was also the first super-hero comic I got into as a kid.
